Cybex British WeightLifting & Para-Powerlifting Championships 2016: Watch the competition highlights video

2016 was the biggest year yet for the Cybex British Weight Lifting Championships, with a record number of people attending an action packed weekend at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. Over 100 lifters competed in 19 different weight categories in the hope of becoming a British Champion.

This year’s competition was the last chance for the sport’s top athletes to be considered for selection for the Olympic Games, with Sonny Webster and Rebekah Tiler putting in performances which helped them earn their places as part of Team GB in Rio this summer.

British Weight Lifting has put together a highlights video of the competition which includes some exclusive behind the scenes footage.
